About

Students of the Criminal Justice and Criminology with Public Administration program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee develop a broad foundation for understanding criminal justice policy, and the conceptual and analytical skills critical to the effective management of public agencies and programs.

Overview

Contemporary public officials are required to make complex choices and implement programs and policies within difficult financial, legal, political, and organizational constraints. More than ever, it is important that administrators be able to work with a variety of people, both within and outside the public sector. 

Professional education thus encompasses fiscal control, quantitative analysis, organization management, decision analysis, and a working understanding of government institutions and legal procedures.

Degree Requirements

The total credits for the coordinated Criminal Justice and Criminology with Public Administration program from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee would typically be completed in both programs at the same time, rather than one program after the other. Students will take 33 credits for the MS in Criminal Justice & Criminology and a minimum of 39 for the MPA. Degrees will be awarded simultaneously. A student not completing the requirements for the coordinated degree program would need to complete all requirements for an individual program in order to receive a degree.

Students in the coordinated MS/MPA program must complete all degree requirements within seven years of the first enrollment as a degree student.
